Troux and BDNA Enable Customers to Make More Confident Technology Infrastructure Decisions

BDNA's Technopedia™ Catalog and Troux's EPM Solutions Allow Enterprise Architects to Quickly See How Technology Assets Support the Business

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 27, 2014) - Troux, the global leader in Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPM) and Enterprise Architecture (EA) solutions, today announced a partnership with BDNA, the leading Data Cloud company, to provide Troux customers with access to the BDNA's comprehensive Technopedia catalog. When business context from Troux EPM solutions are combined with BDNA'S Technopedia catalog, the result is accurate, actionable information that portfolio planners can use to see the big picture. This expansive visibility allows decision makers to see how their applications, technologies, processes and people relate to one another and the overall business. 

"Enterprise Architects are often hampered by asset repositories that are sparsely populated and contain seemingly conflicting data. This disconnected, inconsistent and incomplete data prevents them from making timely and confident architectural decisions," said Will Scott, CMO of Troux. "Using BDNA's Technopedia catalog to deliver clean data enriched with market intelligence will give EAs valuable insight via a comprehensive IT reference catalog of software information." 

The Technopedia catalog contains more than 38 million researched data points for over 960,000 hardware and software products. The data is updated every day with new products and market information such as software support levels, Windows compatibility, end-of-life dates, hardware power consumption, and much more. Technopedia also tracks vendor mergers and acquisitions, informing users of market changes so enterprises are never left guessing on if their data is accurate.

"Troux helps business leaders better understand what assets they have, what assets they need, and how to quickly and safely retire or decommission assets that are no longer needed," said Lennard Fischer, executive vice president of marketing at BDNA. "With BDNA's Technopedia catalog and Troux's EPM solutions, Enterprise Architects are now able to confidently make decisions about technology infrastructure and the IT estate, knowing that the underlying data is accurate, timely, and complete."
